Celebrate World Water Week

For the Love of Water: A Discussion with Film Producer Gill Holland

Wednesday, March 20
Noon – 1:00 p.m.
Ogle Hall, Room 121
Free Lunch Provided!

Flow, produced by Gill Holland, is an award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century – The World Water Crisis.Flow builds a case against the growing privatization of the world’s dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution,human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film intoduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question “CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?”Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.

Gill Holland and his wife Augusta have been instrumental in turning a formerly economically depressed and run-down east downtown Louisville area into a thriving arts/design and sustainable district, now known as “NuLu” – Louisville’s East Market District.  Holland coined the term NuLu and serves as President of the NuLu Business Association. 4 years ago, Holland opened NuLu’s flagship arts center “The Green Building”, a renovated 120 year old building which is now certified LEED “Platinum” and the greenest commercial building in Kentucky.

A Spirit Award nominee for film producer of the year (the Oscars for independent films), Gill has worked on over 90 movies, many award winners and Sundance Film Festival favorites.  Gill is a former lawyer, also owns sonaBLAST! Records (Ben Sollee is on the label) He is involved on many cultural boards (incl. Fund for the Arts, Speed Art Museum, Actors Theatre, Olmsted Parks Conservancy, KY Film Commission) and was named 2009’s Person of the Year by Louisville Magazine.  He has three children, Cora, Owsley and Lilla.

Flow will be available for viewing via continuous loop on campus televisions all day on March 19 before the open discussion.
